Gilbert Huph is a character and a supporting antagonist in The Incredibles. He was the boss of Bob Parr at Insuricare.
Gilbert Huph is the diminutive, short (both in height and temper), and immoral CEO of Insuricare and Bob's boss, more concerned with reaping a profit than the well-being of his customers.
He is always annoyed that Bob keeps authorizing payment on insurance policies to different clients, even if it is part of their coverage. He reprimands Bob, asking him how Insuricare can remain profitable when Bob writes checks to every "Harry Hardluck" and "Sally Sobstory" that gives him a phone call.
Gilbert Huph figures out that Bob has been guiding customers through the legal loopholes to get the insurance they need, and calls him down to his office. Bob then sees a man being mugged through the window and tries to alert Mr. Huph to the man being mugged, but when Huph sees that the man is getting mugged, he nonchalantly remarks that he hopes that he isn't insured. Bob tries to go and save him, but Huph threatens to fire him if he leaves his office. Bob then sees the mugger running away and succeeding. Mr. Huph then tries to tell Bob that he was close to losing his job, but Bob (enraged that he failed to save a citizen and disgusted by his boss's apathy) snaps and loses his temper, brutally grabs Huph by the throat, and in his rage, throws him through 5 walls, severely injuring him.
Huph is then hospitalized, in traction, and possibly mind-wiped by Agent Rick Dicker. However, Mr. Huph survives and tells Rick that Bob is fired.
It is unknown what becomes of Mr. Huph after The Incredibles movie, but he most likely recovers from his injuries and goes back to work.
- "Don't tell me about their coverage, Bob! Tell me how you're keeping Insuricare in the black. Tell me how that's possible with you writing checks to every 'Harry Hardluck' and 'Sally Sobstory' that gives you a phone call!"
- "I'm not happy, Bob. Not happy."
- They're experts! Experts Bob! Exploiting every loophole, dodging every obstacle, they're penetrating a bureaucracy!"
